Beatles Rarities Vol.2

Wonder how loud the AC-100 would need to get to sound right?

Not very. I built an AC-80/100 (the first version that The Beatles used) to use as a bass amp. I too assumed it wouldn’t be very interesting as a guitar amp at practical volumes. I was wrong. Very rich and 3D all the way up and down the dial. It was a big surprise to me.

Gotta love the Trixon drums. Every time I see one of those kits with the conical bass drum and cymbal stand at an angle, it looks like it's on the verge of flopping over.

But still less strange than the Daliesque version with what looks like a deflating blow-up bass drum.

This must be a rarity. Paul with his brand new Hofner, and Stu with his Hofner both on stage at the same time. Changing of the bassists.
